COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.

We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
A common dental health problem, tooth loss can have a significant impact on your normal activities. Our affordable quality dentures can replace your lost teeth, helping you achieve better quality of life.
What Patient Needs a Denture?
Dentures in Clermont are a proven method of replacing missing teeth. A denture consists of a row of natural-colored, translucent pontic teeth that are attached to a detachable frame or titanium implants. Dentures allow you to chew, speak, and participate in other activities just as you would with your natural teeth. If you’re ready to find out if dentures are right for you, book a consultation at our office.
How Many Different Types of Dentures Are There?
Our skilled dentists provide a host of denture choices to meet your needs. Please call our office to learn more about our customized dentures.
Even if you are missing most of your teeth or have several damaged teeth, restoring your smile is possible with a full denture. These custom-fitted dental appliances serve as a replacement for a full arch of teeth. They can be used as lower or upper dentures, and can be removable or permanently fixed using dental implants.
A partial denture can be used when you still have multiple healthy teeth. Dentists sometimes refer to these devices as removable dental bridges because they function similarly to a traditional bridge. However, unlike a dental bridge, partials rely on a clasp system for support instead of adjacent dental crowns.
Flexible Partial Denture
Constructed using realistic-looking thermoplastic, a flexible partial is a discreet and comfortable method of restoring a small section of teeth. Flexible partials feature a non-rigid base and pliable gum-colored clasps, making the appliance easy to wear.
Ideal for those who have ample jawbone remaining, implant-supported dentures rely on durable dental implants for support. Before receiving an implant-supported denture, your dentist will strategically place dental implants into the jaw. This type of denture snaps into place and can be detachable or permanent.
All-on-4® Denture Concept: Is It Right for My Needs?
If you desire a stable hold and maximum strength when chewing, All-on-4® dentures might be right for you. During the All-on-4 dentures procedure, one of our dentists inserts four implants into your jaw with two placed at an angle. This type of denture won’t slip or become dislodged, allowing you to eat, smile, and speak with confidence.
What Is the Complete Process for Getting Dentures?
Getting a new set of dentures begins with a consultation at our office. You’ll receive a thorough dental exam from one of our dentists, and he or she will determine which type of denture suits your needs. The dentist will create impressions of your bite and teeth which allows the dental lab to craft a denture that replicates your natural jaw function. If you are getting a full denture or implant-supported denture, you may require tooth extractions or implant surgery. We provide patients with temporary appliances to wear as their gums heal. After your custom-crafted denture arrives from the lab, you’ll visit the dentist once more for a fitting.
What Do Dentures Cost on Average?
Multiple factors are considered when calculating the final cost of dentures. These factors include the type of denture recommended, the materials used to fabricate the appliance, and whether your insurance offers coverage. Call us now for further details about our affordable quality dentures.
What Are Soft Dentures?
A soft denture is an appliance that has been relined with a pliable, comfortable material. Getting a soft denture reline can alleviate pain caused by sore spots or other irritation caused by rigid appliances.
